Frustrated residents told the news outlet that the music has been heard several times since the summer, but some added it has gotten much worse in recent weeks as the music can be heard through the night.

“We’ve had officers, including myself, go to Delaware to attempt to locate the music and we’ve narrowed it down to a very small area,” Stranahan Sr. said.

The chief added: “Everyone assumes it’s local because it’s so loud.

The music can be heard loudly in a video recorded by a Pennsville resident at the Delaware Memorial Bridge Sunday night.

Some residents say the music is s`o powerful they can feel vibrations from it.

Carneys Point Police Chief Gerald Krivda said that his department also received numerous complaints, which were handed off to authorities in Delaware.
